Rock Wall Programming
Climb With Us!
The LaHaye Rock Wall is open to all members of LaHaye Rec & Fit. There is no age limit for climbing the tower, however, children under the age of 13 will not be able to participate in bouldering. All parents are required to sign an additional AOR form for their children to climb.
Join us at the LaHaye Rock Wall for our Bouldering class! Bouldering consists of short, low routes that will train strength and power while learning proper body movement techniques. All levels are welcome. Class sign-ups and additional information are available at the LaHaye Rock Wall front desk.
Top Rope Class
Interested in learning more about how to belay and top rope climb at the LaHaye Rock Wall? Join us for our Top Rope class. You will learn valuable skills that will ensure you are climbing and belaying safely and effectively. All levels are welcome. Class sign-ups and additional information are available at the LaHaye Rock Wall front desk.
Lead Climbing Class
Lead Climbing is climbing without the use of pre-set belays. One person (the leader) will start the climb carrying one end of the rope and will gradually attach it to additional anchors as he/she climbs, thereby establishing a belay system that progresses with the climb. Class sign-ups and additional information are available at the LaHaye Rock Wall front desk.
Lead Climbing Basics, Belay Techniques, Climbing and Clipping, and Practice are all covered in the four-day course. *Must attend all class dates to complete the course.
Prerequisites: Intermediate to Expert level class; all must first attend Top Rope and Bouldering class, as well as pass the LaHaye Rock Wall Belay Test to take this course.
Route Cleaning Class
This class is set up for those that want to take their skills as a route climber outdoors. Cleaning is the process of removing your gear from a route that you have climbed. On outdoor routes, quickdraws and anchors are not pre-established, so you need to set your own equipment and then remove it after you are finished. We are going to teach you the proper way to remove (clean) your equipment off a route. This is not something that needs to be done in an indoor gym but it is great to learn in a safe indoor setting. Lead experience is required.
Prerequisites: Top Rope, Bouldering, and Lead Climbing classes or be currently certified in top rope and lead climbing at the LaHaye Rock Wall.
